The landmark New Year's Eve 1978 concert special that marked the end of the famed San Francisco Bay Area venue Winterland is now back on DVD in a deluxe 2-DVD set.

Packed with music, and bonus features, this DVD is arguably the Dead's finest hour.

I am quite surprised that there are so few customer reviews for this most worthy 2013 DVD release of the Grateful Dead live on New Year's Eve 1987 at the Oakland Coliseum - the same concert as recorded on audio CD New Years Eve 1987.

Could the fact that Amazon has it wrong on its product description page - that being an incorrect editorial review for the 1978 concert at Winterland rather than the 1987 New Year's Eve concert at Oakland Coliseum - have anything to do with the gross lack of attention? I suspect it might. The set lists in the editorial review above are in fact correct for this 1987 show but the concert description is way off. In fact, I almost passed over this DVD because of the error - I thought it was the 1978 Winterland show as described and not the 1987 show I was looking for. I am so thrilled that this great DVD is really the one I wanted.

I was among the thousands of ecstatically dancing Deadheads at that 1987 show, so this is a concert that sings to my heart. My late hubby and I attended so many of the Dead's New Year's Eve shows for well over a decade and it is so exhilarating for me to watch this great production again and again. My sweet husband and I never missed the San Francisco Bay area New Year's parties with the Dead and all of our brother and sister Deadheads, and perhaps I am just being sentimental but this production brings all those joyous moments back to me and allows me to access all the tender pain I still carry in my heart over the death of my beloved husband and of dear, dear Jerry. (My husband died from a massive heart attack two years before Jerry did).

Nevertheless...I think this is a great show!

AMAZON.COM Editorial as got it wrong, this is the Okland Concert, the top editorial refers to CLOSING OF WINTERLAND.

One of the saddest times for Deadheads since the death of Jerry Garcia is New Year's Eve. The Dead's legendary performances in the Bay Area ushered in a couple of decades worth of new years, and even if you couldn't make it, it was comforting to know the band was carrying on the tradition. Well, that tradition is gone, but there's a video experience that comes pretty darn close--The Grateful Dead: Ticket to New Year's, taped on New Year's Eve 1987 at the Oakland Coliseum. It's a creatively photographed and extraordinarily performed concert film that ranks among the best Dead performances on video, packed with delightful surprises. Some of the best: a robust "Terrapin Station," a rare rendition of the stoner fave "Dark Star," and an unflinchingly bluesy "Knockin' on Heaven's Door." The effect of the whole performance is that of a bittersweet valentine to a way of life that may be gone but is still beloved. --Anne Hurley

while the sets represented here are fine, the real treat is not presented here and that's the Nevelle Bros. appearence for the 3rd set.
yes, there were 3 sets this night.
Set: III looks like this:

Man Smart, woman Smarter
iko Iko
Banana Boat Song (Day-O) ->
Do You wanna Dance? ->
Knockin' On Heaven's Door

Jer laughs, smiles and dances, it's sick and it's the true gem of this evening

This is a great DVD. The Grateful Dead have always been one of the best bands ever and having a DVD to enjoy over and over is great.

in 1987 I was 16 and my brother 14 and we ordered this on pay per view without getting our folks permission. man we loved the show unfortunately we didn't love when our mom got the cable bill the next month..ha ha.. I am so glad this is on dvd I just got mine the other day in the mail and I am ordering one for my brother. this show was our first real exposure to the dead we grew up listening to our folks albums but they didn't own any dead . we got to see them once in philly at the spectrum for their 25th anniversary tour before jerry died.anyway I am so glad I bought it brings back great memories of that night. been a fan of the dead since this concert on tv all those years ago..
